Employing humans to do jobs monkey robots could do. Great.

The thing I find most interesting about the "spinners" is that some of them are truly engaged in their work and perform with such verve it's almost impossible to ignore them. Others are literally just going through the motions.
I think "spinning" is a new form of theater. This could be a good part time gig for someone who wants to explore a career in the performing arts. "My one-man show was seen by thousands" would make a good resume line.
(For pure enthusiasm it's hard to beat middle-schoolers trying to drum up business for a charity car wash.)

I bet that Monkey Robots are more costly than Humans...
Also, the human factor is part of the experience. I don't think a sign rocked back and forth by a machine would get as many views.
